§ MR. CHILDERS (Edinburgh, S.)
inquired, When the Navy Estimates would be circulated? observing that they were very late this year.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Lord GEORGE HAMILTON) (Middlesex, Ealing)
The only reason for the delay is that the form in which the Estimates are to be presented has had to be recast, and they will contain more information than they did previously. Consequently, there has been a delay on 188 the part of the printer. The printer undertakes, however, that they shall be circulated to-morrow, and we propose to take the Navy Estimates on Monday.
